MAC Cosmetics Sized To Go Pigment in Rose contains 2.5 grams / 0.09 US ounces and retails for $10. The full sized pigment contains 4.5 grams / 0.15 US ounces of product for $21. Rose is a beautifully frosty rose shade with copper sparkle. MAC pigments contain ingredients that help adhere to the skin so that you can create a subtle wash of color or even an intense look.
For this look, I use a brush to just sweep the color all over. I also added some black on the outer corner to deepen up the look. All the glitter and sparkle kind of took over the matte black, which I loved.
Using the pigment dry and with a brush gave me a lot of fall out though. I had to be careful and do my foundation and concealer after the application.
To try to use the pigment in another way, I mixed it into a Bare Minerals Buttercream Lip Gloss in Must Have Pink to give me more shimmer. It helped pair up the lip gloss with the eye look really well.
For this look, I use a tackier, but clear, base so that I could get the full effects of the pigment. It also made the color more metallic.
No matter the base I used, the color did stay on all day. The stickier the base, the less fallout I had though. I have sensitive eyes and so I was worried about the glitter getting into my eyes and irritating them, but that didn't happen at all.
I really prefer using my fingers or a small flat and dense eyeshadow brush to apply the pigment. Because I got the travel sized pigment, the opening wasn't that big for many other brushes. That is the only downside to the packaging for me.
Final thoughts: I love this pigment so much and I'm so glad that I got it. Pinks on the eyes sometimes make people look sick or tired, but this is bright and sparkly enough that just makes it look really festive. I have tried other loose pigments, but this one really did stay true to the description and adhered to my lids better.
